Executives from Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant are to be seeking new partners and other big technology companies, including Apple Inc and Facebook Inc's Oculus division, will be at the show behind-the-scenes as they ramp up their virtual reality and AR products.

Hence, by the time Apple releases its AR glasses, Alexa-enabled glasses could have already established a market just like what happened to the Echo series and Apple's upcoming HomePod. Models such as the HTC U11, Huawei Mate 9, and Moto X4 lately entered the smartphone market with Alexa integration alongside Google Assistant. In October, Sonos unveiled a smart speaker with Alexa's system for controlling music playback. Much of this success is due to the Echo's built-in voice-controlled intelligent virtual assistant, Alexa.
